Stardust Circus (established in the early 1990s) is a circus that tours in Australia. Its annual performance season lasts from January to late November, touring Australia from the remotest towns to the largest cities.

The circus was established by the Lennon and West families, two circus families with tradition going back to the late 19th century.[1] It is a very traditional form of circus and is one of only three circuses left in Australia with big cats in their programme.

Stardust Circus showcases a wide variety of circus arts such as tumblers, solo trapeze, acrobats, teeter board, aerial silks, cloud swing, flying trapeze and clowns. Animals include liberty horses (performing dressage without rider and on signals alone), monkeys, Welsh mountain liberty ponies, lions and dogs.

Janice Lennon's daughter Natalie married Rudy Weber and they run Webers Circus.[2]
